Little Miss Muffin is hoping for a very special home of her own. This beautiful boxer is about 7 years old and came to us from our Newark facility when her owners gave her up. Muffin won us over instantly with her big, hopeful eyes and sweet and loving personality. Muffin was a thin little lady when she came in and seemed quite neglected.
She didn't let it get her down though and seemed to know that she was in good hands. Muffin began enjoying lots of love and attention from our staff and volunteers and even had her first ever spa day, (below), and soon she was plumping up and feeling great again. Our pretty lady is now enjoying long, leisurely strolls with all of the good friends that she's made, and even runs some laps in our exercise yard when she's feeling ambitious.
During a routine spay, it was discovered that Muffin had some small mammary masses. Our veterinarian removed the masses and biopsied them. Unfortunately, one of the masses turned out to be malignant. The good news is that although Muffin has mammary cancer, her prognosis is very good as this is a very slow-growing cancer. We are confident that Muffin has many good years ahead of her, but she would really love to spend those years in a home with a wonderful family that will love and care for her always. Muffin is an easy-going girl that is perfectly behaved and gets along great with everyone. She doesn't seem to mind other dogs and just adores people. This beautiful lady was given up on once already in her life, so we would love to prove to her that there are good people in this world that will love her forever, no matter what.
